All England Handicap Area Final 2019
John Bevington and Peter Aspinall were Wrest Park’s representatives at the area final held at Ashby over the weekend of 31 August-
John and Peter found themselves drawn against each other for the first game, playing on lawn 3. Everyone had to play one game on this lawn, which was more uneven than the other two and (due to an administrative oversight) had not been cut. It was a case of hit hard and hope, and John won. Neal’s fluent accuracy was obvious from the start when he went round on the third turn against Adam, but he ended up losing the game. As it was his only defeat he finished the clear winner, but could not be presented with his trophy as there was nothing to present. Is this a CA austerity measure or merely another administrative oversight?
